Kierra Sheard journeyed back to the neighborhood where she was raised in Detroit recently for an episode of the Toyota series, "#BLX" where she gave fans a glimpse of her Christian roots.
Kierra, 27, has always had a powerful voice which she has used to sing for the Lord in the choir of her father's church since the age of 6. As the daughter of Grammy award winning singer Karen Clark Sheard of the gospel music group The Clark Sisters and Bishop J Drew Sheard of the Greater Emmanuel Church of God in Christ in Detroit, Kierra spoke about her parents' influence on her when taking a walk through her old neighborhood.
"This block is important to me because this is where I saw my father be a provider and shepherd; and I saw my mom be a wife and a mother," Kierra said on #BLX. "...This is where we started making it, we started seeing God do a lot of great things in our lives. This was the home where my mom recorded her first record, Finally Karen and that's when I had my first debut moment." more >>

Michelle Williams does not believe Christians should criticize people like her good friend Beyonce Knowles for her decision to sing gospel music as a secular artist.
Williams, the 34-year-old gospel singer formerly of Destiny's Child, took to her Twitter account in an emotional post about Christians ridiculing "someone she loved" for singing gospel music. Although Williams did not name Beyonce in her post, the message comes just days after the latter decided to sing a new rendition of Mahalia Jackson's "Precious Lord, Take My Hand."
The song rose back to mainstream popularity once again recently after it was featured in the civil rights film, "Selma." However, it was singer Ledisi that belted out the tune in the film, leaving many to question why Beyonce felt the need to do so at the recent Grammy award show while simultaneously criticizing her performance. more >>
